At Jabba's palace. Before Luke dropped into the rancor pit, he grabbed a blaster and it looked like it fell down into the pit with him.

And another thing: Why would the rebel fleet attack before getting confirmation that the shields were down? Why not wait for a "go" code instead of just hoping and praying that the strike team gets the job done?

1. The rancor has a fairly resistant hide that can deflect a blaster shot easily, so even if it had fallen through, why use it? But I'm pretty sure it fell to the side, not into the trap door. 2. It would be difficult to get a message off of a planet surrounded by an Imperial armada monitoring every message in the system, so they would find the signal, stop it, then head to the surface and slaughter the strike force. :/ Not the smoothest move.

He could have shot it in the eye though when it picked him up. For any living thing that has eyes, it is a very sensitive area as well as a direct passage to the brain. It would definitely have done some damage.

Hadn't thought of that. Yeah, the Empire would definitely intercept the transmission.
